"Did you ever see Dallas from a DC9 at night?"
If you haven't guessed it by now, yes, we did name our blog after the opening lyric of "Dallas" by The Flatlanders. And the legendary trio has reunited for a tour that is making a stop at The Sons Of Hermann Hall on Saturday, November 20.
Sons promoter and All Good Cafe owner Mike Snider called to tell us the news, and to remind us just how much he likes The Flatlanders. He referred to the group's three members as "The Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, and Buddha of Texas Rock."
Tickets will be available for $40 for seats and $25 for standing over at Front Gate.
And in not-so-original show announcement news, we don't usually make too big a deal about cover bands, but this one seems noteworthy: On Monday, December 27, Rad Bromance, an all male Lady Gaga cover band, will be playing at House Of Blues. The novelty of the group is funny for all of 30 seconds, but should you still want tickets to this show two months from now, you can get them at Live Nation.
